1735 E. 11th Street

— Tulsa's Historic Route 66 —

In 1936, Edwin and Jessie Holmes, owners of the Tulsa
Monument Company, announced a move from their long time
downtown location at 11 West Brady Street to this location.
The move coincided with the company's fortieth anniversary
selling memorials, monuments, and mausoleums, as well as
specialty building stone such as imported granite and marble.
This new site provided adequate land for the storage of
materials and assembly of large monuments. Immediate access
to Route 66 was beneficial for the delivery of raw materials
and finished products.

This stunning Art Deco building was designed in a style known
as 3-bar modern. The architect, Harry H. Mahler, designed it to
be reminiscent of a monument.

Many beautiful, custom monuments have been designed and
set in cemeteries around Oklahoma and surrounding states by
craftsman working in and from this building, which has housed
a monument company since its construction.
